Have you ever been put in a socially (un)acceptable situation? Have you ever felt guilty about not having sex with someone? You're not alone.
Straight from Edinburgh and Melbourne Fringe Festivals, socially [un]acceptable is a raw stage performance which details one woman's personal experience of sexual assault through a series of autobiographical vignettes. This powerful performance is paired with anonymous portraits of sexual assault survivors by Adelaide artist Stephanie Mitchell.
Unapologetically honest and confronting, socially [un]acceptable will challenge and inspire you. Inspire you to help change the narrative in today's society, to help shut down slut shaming and victim blaming. To help give young people the strength and the confidence to be true to themselves.

Important information:
Trigger warning for sexual assault survivors.
